Tudor is boldly presenting the new 1926 series to both men and women. To accommodate all wrist sizes and personal preferences, the renowed brand is offering the marvelous 1926 line in 41, 39, 36, and feminine 28 mm versions.
Simbolically, the 1926 collection is named after the year when Tudor was officially registered as a brand on behalf of Rolex famous founder Hans Wilsdorf. This collection faithfully captures Tudor’s philosophy and continues down the very same path that is chosen since its early days, emerging as a high-quality watch technically and aesthetically, with a level of sophistication and reasonable price.
Likewise, under their vintage aesthetic this new wristwatches are engineered using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, reflecting a world of fine Swiss watchmaking where mechanical excellence goes hand-in-hand with matchless identity. Likewise, the bracelet imbues the watch with style and provides a comfortable union with the wrist. Tudor has ones again skilfully blended materials and dials, so the result is nothing less than impressive.
Underlining its true unisex appearance, as mentioned previously, the Tudor 1926 comes in four sizes: 28, 36, 39 and 41 mm, so there is one to suit every wrist. The cases themselves, available in all steel or in two-tone steel and noble rose gold have the sublte lines and curved lugs of past generation while the classic use of colours and materials makes this watch a paragon of grace. A key strength of this dial is that it elegantly conveys the essentials of time.
Furthermore, each element of the dial proves sophisticated and timeless appeal. The range comes with Arabic numerals and the option of arrow-shaped indexes or shinny diamond accents on the odd-numbers. All the watches in the collection have a beautiful balance and remain highly legible due to strongly contrasting dial elements, particularly the opaline dials with their vivid blue hands and hour markers. Even the small-scale date window at three o’clock doesn’t throw out the recognizable Tudor symmetry.
Securing the watch is a Jubilee-style bracelet made up of seven links of varying sizes. A combination of polished inner and satin-brushed outer links, it closely bonds to the shape of the wearer’s wrist and comes in various styles to match the artistic style. On some versions, gold links adds dash of undeniable luxury. Meticulously assembled, the Tudor bracelet is both flexible and strong, comfortable and secure.
Dressy aesthetic of the 1926 series is exactly what sets these watches apart in Tudor’s lineup and, ultimately, links the brand back to its roots in an era when the goal was to look elegant even while doing not so elegant things.
Whatever you choose, it’s the performance of the 1926 that makes them true dressy tool watches suited to daily wear. According to tradition the 100 m water resistance, seven-row jubilee-type bracelet, and sapphire crystal mean worry-free swimming. The presence of Caliber 2824 (41, 39, 36mm) and caliber 2671 (28mm) is proudly announced on the dial as it was with the Tudors of past times – the legend Rotor Self-Winding is printed with a slight curvature in a style that has been known by Tudor collectors as a smile dial.
Despite being hidden from view, behind a solid case-back, the movement is beautifully appointed. Blending enviable levels of comfort with daring looks and peerless performance, this collection epitomizes the distinctive Tudor excellence.
